Rees was a graduate of the Coventry City youth team, and was given his debut for the senior team by Jimmy Hill in May 1962. Rees spent six years at Highfield Road, helping Coventry gain promotion from Division Three to Division One.
Swansea City manager Roy Bentley paid Forest a club-record £26,000 for Rees in January 1972. Rees spent three-and-a-half seasons with Swansea before joining Haverfordwest of the League of Wales in August 1975.
Following his retirement from professional football, Rees worked at the Ford motorworks in Swansea and Bridgend. He was forced to retire in 1995, at the age of 51, after suffering a major stroke that took his ability to walk and talk. He is now a resident at Hengoed Court Care Home, Swansea.
